Ridden Down by Frederic Remington from 1906.

Remington accompanied the US Military on many exploits, including the last great battles against the Native Americans. Theodore Roosevelt was a great fan of his work, and Remington was invited personally by Roosevelt to accompany him to some battles. After returning from the Spanish-American war Roosevelt was given one of Remingtons early sculptures as a gift from the Rough Riders.

Remington also wrote western novels, and as already mentioned, sculpted. His first full page published artwork was for Harper’s Weekly on January 9, 1886.
